[Bug-tar] Problem when creating a tar archive with over 1, 500 folders i

Good morning,
        I currently use tar 1.13.25 to perform backups of my servers on a regular basis.  I have noticed an issue when trying to backup a hare on a Windows 2003 server.  The servers share is called "Data".  In the data share there are many files and folders.  One folder (called SD3) has over about 1,500 sub-folders in it, and each folder holds images for my company.  (We made this structure to organize the images for each of our customers). 
        What I have noticed is that when doing the backup, tar will backup all the folders, before and after the SD3 folder, but completely skips the SD3 folder and all its sub-folders.
        I don't believe it is a size limit issue, since I have another tar archive that is over 27 GB in size that works each day.  I have tried creating a new folder to replace the SD3 folder, no luck.  I have also tried to share out the SD3 folder it's self, still no luck.  I really need to fix this issue soon so I make sure all the data is getting backed up.  The read me file for tar 1.14 has no indication if this issue has been fixed.  I am not sure what else to do. 
Thank you for your help,
Michael Vieau
